Seeing is believing.
The Exorcist: Believer–the sequel to the 1973 horror classic–had a “good news-bad news” opening weekend–leading the domestic box office, but coming short of expectations and only posting a 20 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes.
The film earned a respectable $27 million from 3,600 domestic theaters this weekend, according to a report on Deadline. But that figure fell far short of the $76-million opening that director David Gordon Green’s Halloween enjoyed in 2018.
The Blumhouse feature–helmed by Green from a screenplay he wrote with Scott Teems, Danny McBride and Peter Sattler.
In the film–set several decades after the original–Victor Fielding (Leslie Odom Jr.) is raising his daughter Angela (Lidya Jewett) alone since his wife’s death, and things go well until the day that Angela and her friend Katherine (Olivia Marcum) become lost in the woods.
The girls return three days later–with no memory of what happened to them–and Fielding soon becomes embroiled in a series of events that force him to “confront evil–and to find the one person who has seen something like this before: Chris MacNeil (the returning Ellen Burstyn).”
